    You do know Giannis has shit on Marc Gasol all this when he was with the griz right?

    A tough one for me. Leaning bucks. Kwahi I think will play better then Giannis but the bucks shooting will get them there.such a hard one tho. I don't really mind who wins

    If Middleton and Bledsoe play to their potential, I'll take the Bucks in 6 or 7

    I think Kawhi should play up on Giannis. Most guys play way off him daring him to shoot jumpers.

    Giannis isn't taking the bait. He just closes the space and gets momentum going to the basket.

    Toronto could win this if they don't choke. we already know Kawhi is going to show up and deliver a great performance, but they need Siakam to drop 20, Lowry minimum 15, Dany hit some 3's, Gasol hit some mid range, a 3 from Ibaka or 2.

    all hands on deck basically, but I really doubt Toronto (besides Kawhi) shows up.

    Bucks in 6. I think Kawhi will meet or exceed Giannis, but ultimately the Bucks will shoot the ball better.

    I mean, pulling out yesterday's win was a big confidence boost. Plus, I feel like a team's poise under pressure starts with the best player and the rest follow, and Kawhi is ice in the clutch.

    This should be a good series in any event. I wonder if the Bucks have had too much time off and come out flat, it's the rest vs. momentum argument.

    you would think so, but their offense goes stale at times, yesterday they missed wide open shots...that's my concern. wide open shots and you brick them? in a game 7 none the less. bucks are much better shooting team than the sixers, so toronto won't get away with having bad shooting stretches/games.

    and as for Bucks having a week off, normally i'd say rust can be a factor, but it benefits Brogdon since he's just come back from injury.

    i said it when the playoffs had just begun, Toronto has a high ceiling, as much as any team, but they have the lowest ceiling in that when their offense goes cold...it's BAD. think about it, Lowry and Siakam can both drop 20-25 a night but at the same time have a bad game and finish with 10pts each. and it's not just them both, Gasol and Ibaka, and even Danny Green all seem to go cold at the same time. Danyy Green played 30mins last night and only had 2pts. the game before that? 35 minutes with 8pts on 2-8 shooting

    Well things ended up where the regular season suggested it should for once. Let's see how this plays out...

    a nice upset on the warriors would be entertaining.

    Gasol needs to start shooting if the Raps are going to be competitive. He was passing up open shots consistently. Open shots aren't easy to come by in the playoffs.

    Yeah you're probably right Manny.

    If only we held onto Ed Davis all those years back. Maybe then we'd stand a chance.

    You mean the rebuilding version of Memphis? I'm talking about Gasol's help defense and keeping Giannis out of the paint for Toronto... Marc did a great job against Philly and his defense will be key in this series as well.

    It's like the Lebron conundrum. You want to give him space and invite the jumper but you also don't want to give him space to build momentum. I think it will vary depending on the physical abilities of the individual defender.
